Episode 1 Chelsea Bruck Murder

Episode 1 – Chelsea Bruck

 

Chelsea Bruck

Halloween is a big deal for this little country town in Maybee, Michigan and surrounding areas. Chelsea Bruck was last seen at a large Halloween party in Frenchtown Township on October 26th, 2014 and this missing person would shake up the entire town. Months passed by without any break in the case. She was missing and no one knew what happened, but 6 months later one of her shoes she wore turns up, and her costume soon after. Multiple people are questioned, but still there are very little answers, until there is a break in the case a few months later when the DNA of Daniel Clay matches what was found on Chelsea Bruck’s costume. Join Kristin and Amy and listen in on the details about this case.
